One day after Mafia boss James "Whitey" Bulger was found dead inside his West Virginia prison cell, known Mafia hit man Fotios "Freddy" Geas is under investigation.

According to the Boston Globe, Geas, 51, and another inmate were caught on tape walking into Bulger's cell around 6:00a.m. this Tuesday.

They allegedly dragged his wheelchair into a corner where surveillance cameras could not see them, and beat him to death with a lock wrapped in a sock. Sources told the newspaper the man also tried to gouge his eyes out.

While Geas is reportedly refusing to cooperate with the investigation, private investigator Ted McDonough is not surprised that he is being accused of murder.

"Freddy hated rats," McDonough told The Globe. "Freddy hated guys who abused women. Whitey was a rat who killed women. It's probably that simple."

Bulger became an FBI informant in 1975. In 2011, he was caught by authorities after 16 years on the run, and was later found guilty of killing 11 people. He was sentenced to life in prison in 2013.

Bulger — the infamous crime boss of Boston's Winter Hill Gang — was 89 years old.
